Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has urged Nigerians to respect each other’s choices when it comes to political candidates.
In a recent social media post, he pointed out that no matter how good a candidate is, they will never be everyone’s candidate.
Edochie also addressed the issue of celebrities supporting political candidates and the backlash they sometimes face for doing so.
He reminded Nigerians that celebrities are not in charge of elections like INEC and that dragging them into political disputes is a waste of time and energy.
Furthermore, Edochie noted that not all support for a candidate is based on financial gain.
Some people support a candidate because they believe in their vision, because the candidate has supported them in the past, or simply because they like the candidate.
However, the actor emphasized that everyone’s choice must be respected, and urged Nigerians to learn to coexist peacefully despite their diverse views and choices.
Tunde Ednut posted a picture few days ago of Dangote congratulating Jagaban, nobody insulted Dangote.
Many people in the comment section were praising Dangote for having good business strategies.
But If it was a celebrity that congratulated Tinubu by now insults will be flying up and down.
Even celebrities are fighting the mselves over choice of candidate.
You people are doing too much.
I know the outcome of the election is still hurting a lot of people and it’s understandable, but we all need to calm
Leave celebrities alone.
No be celebrities spoil Nigeria.
Everyone has a right to support any candidate of their choice.
No matter how good your candidate is, he or she will never be everybody’s candidate.
You have to get used to it and respect each other’s choices. That’s democracy.
Celebrities are not in charge of elections like INEC.
Also note this, not all support is done because of money. Some people support a candidate because they believe in the
candidate’s vision, some support because the candidate has also supported them in the past, some do it because they just like the candidate.
But whatever the reason is, everyone’s choice must be respected.
Also, Celebrities are not decision makers in the country. The decision makers are the people in power.
So dragging celebrities because of decisions made by the leaders doesn’t make any sense. It’s a waste of time and energy.
If a political office holder is not doing well hold him or her accountable.
It is the duty of every citizen to demand good governance, not the duty of celebrities alone.
Let’s stop fighting each other and learn to coexist peacefully irrespective of our diverse views and choices.
